Mountain Biking Galbraith Mountain

*****   Add a review
#1 of 1,210 mountain bike trails in Washington
#53 in the world

Galbraith Mt. is located In Bellingham, WA. between Lakeway Dr. to the north, Yew St. to the west and Samish Dr. on the south. The most distinguishing feature on the mountain is a tall stand of trees at the top that was left untouched after the most recent logging. The trails up at the top can be accessed either from Whatcom Falls park on the north or Galbraith Lane on the south side. This area is full of single track, double track and dirt roads. It would take many trips to explore them all. Elevation gain is about 800'. An excellent resource is which has some very good maps, photos and route descriptions.
